Between catchment assets
These newly identified priority areas were identified as areas of the Mallee landscape that collective experience and science to date suggests are the best places to form biodiversity linkages between two or more Catchment Assets.
These biodiversity links between our Catchment Assets are desirable as, when functioning effectively, they increase the size of connected areas; improving the adaptive capacity of biodiversity by providing opportunities for migration and genetic mixing. Provision of such opportunities is a key strategy to biodiversity adaptation in a changing climate.
Please note: the map on the Map page should be considered in conjunction with the Mallee RCS (2013-19) and the Mallee NRM Plan for Climate Change (2016).
